Vauxhall is a British brand and the oldest surviving car brand in the UK, with its first model produced in 1903. Vauxhall still manufactures a number of its models in the UK today, however, since the early 1970s the designs have come through Vauxhall's continental counterpart, Opel. Opel is a German car manufacturer that makes good, reliable family cars. When you think of German cars, you tend to think of BMW or Audi for example, but Opal has been quietly producing cars since 1862. With a solid range of SUVs including the Mokka and the Crossland as well as hatchbacks, if you’re looking for a reliable rental for the city or a weekend away, a Vauxhall (Opel) car rental is an excellent choice.
The Vauxhall Corsa and Astra
These two models are the flagship models of the brand. While the Vauxhall Corsa is a compact 5-door hatchback, the Astra offers more boot space and is similar in size to the Ford Focus or the SEAT Leon.
The Vauxhall Astra is considered one of the best family hatchbacks in what is a very competitive sector.
More than just hatchbacks
Vauxhall has also expanded into the SUV market with the Mokka, the Crossland and the Grandland X. The Crossland is an SUV crossover model which is perfect for urban driving or longer distances. The Mokka exists in an electric version which can reach 322 kilometres on a single charge, while the Grandland X also has a hybrid version. Vauxhalll’s SUVs are fun and stylish and are perfect for a weekend getaway with the family.
